Now more if possible, we will vindicate the role of the citizens of the Mediterranean as actors of dialogue, cooperation, social cohesion and coexistence in diversity.
Towards a Mediterranean community of the peoples.
MEDITERRANEAN CITIZENS’ ASSEMBLY FOUNDATION (MCAF)
Valencia, June 1, 2019.
This file is the update of the first constitutive Charter, which was prepa- red at the Casablanca meeting held on May 31 2009.
Since 2008, a group of Mediterranean citizens have committed to work towards the emergence of a Mediterranean community of peoples. Hence, they launched the development of a Mediterranean Citizens’ Assembly. In this first step, they elaborated a founding text, basis of this Founding Charter that embraces the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the United Nations on December 8 1948, and also on the 2849 resolution on December 20 1971 about ‘‘Development and environment’’ adopted by the United Nations’ General Assembly. The MCA has created a network of circles around the Mediterranean that favours dialogue, proposition and the citizen action.In 2016, the MCA adopted a legal personality under the status of a Foundation (MCAF) in order to integrate a big variety of persons capable of bringing a wider and shared vision of the Mediterranean basin.
